Student Attendance

The parent must call the attendance office to report an absence and provide a note when the student returns to school. The note should include the name of the student, division number, date and reason for the absence and a current phone number. PARENTS SHOULD CALL THE SCHOOL AT (773) 535-2315 OR (773) 535-2319 AFTER 6A.M.  IF NO ONE ANSWERS, PLEASE LEAVE A MESSAGE.


Emphasis is placed upon good attendance and punctuality.  Parents will be contacted when a student is absent from school. Students are expected to attend all classes during the school day.  Students who accumulate excessive class cuts will be referred to the discipline office. Consequences for cutting class include parent conferences, in-school suspension and out of school suspension. Full and half day attendance is based on the number of classes a student attends that day.  A student who misses a class without a valid reason receives a cut for that class and may be charged with ½ day of absence.

Parents are encouraged to check their child’s progress in the parent portal.
